IGN has some very positive things to say about the forthcoming Star Wars cross-platform video game ‘The Force Unleashed.’
The game takes place between Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV A New Hope, and follows the adventures of Darth Vader‘s evil apprentice who hunts down the remaining Jedi. The game is rumored to be a huge breakthrough for the video game industry, featuring insanely accurate physics and a brand new chapter in the Star Wars mythology.
But it’s release date, August 8, is so very far far away.
Until then, we can salivate over concept art and this review:
What is seemingly the coolest exclusive content [for the PSP] by far is Historic Mode. The game features five classic scenes from the Star Wars films, and you’re able to play them with the enhanced powers from Force Unleashed. For example, you can play as Vader as he takes on Luke in the Cloud City carbonite chamber, and make use of things like Force Lightning or Force Choke. Players will be able to take on Mace Windu on Geonosis as he takes out a number of androids and eventually faces off with Jango Fett, or play through a section on Jabba‘s barge.
